Abstract

Three years after Korea introduced the jury system for the first time in its history, and two years following the Japanese introduction of a mixed court in which citizen and professional judges decide serious criminal cases, the Second East Asian Law and Society Conference was held on September 30th and October 1st, 2011 in the vibrant city of Seoul, South Korea. This Special Issue of the Yonsei Law Journal offers an opportunity to present work on some of the key issues that were discussed and debated at this remarkable conference. In particular, the special issue offers new research on the advent of lay participation in legal decision making in East Asia at a very auspicious period in time.

Keywords: Lay Participation, Jury, Korea, Japan, Saiban-in Seido, Prosecution Review Commission, U.S. Military
